Looking to build a new rig in the next 1 to 3 months. Looking for a mid to high end gaming PC (around a $1600 budget). I currently have dual 24" monitors and play at 1920 whenever possible. Current rig is pushed to limit and I have had a few hardware issues lately.... Play games like TF2, HL2, Max Payne, Supreme Commander, SC2, etc...

Here are my thoughts.... am I missing anything? Does anyone see any bottlenecks \ improvements? Thanks in advance!!!

i agree with augray37.... you could also downgrade the wattage on ur psu.... from what i have read on the sabertooth board, that heat "armor" actually keeps heat in not out..... so i would choose another MOBO...
